We did this hike after our 5 hr drive and it was just what we needed. Short but steep hike up to an incredible view. Well worth the hour it takes to get up to the top.

Brilliant walk. The views are spectacular. A good pair of boots are needed but very easy. Paths are very easy to follow and parking is free on the road.

A beautiful rocky hill area to walk around. Especially when the weather is nice. The view is absolutely amazing. Keep an eye where you stepping, there are sheep around. There is a plateau used for para gliding.

you must stop here. The hike is uphill but it's one of the shorter hikes in Isle of Skye. It was raining on and off while we were up there and absolutely freezing, but the view was unreal. give yourself the time to just enjoy the scenery as you hike, and when you're up there. Best to have appropriate clothing... More

After driving round the peninsula from UIG, where we were staying, we approached The old man of storr which you can see from the road. There is a car park with plenty of spaces just at the bottom of the walk. The first part of the walk which takes you about half way up the mountain towards the old man... More

This hike is not for the faint of heart. It is definitely doable and not limited to the best in shape, but it was an hour or two, strenuous, especially if you want to get to the Storr itself. It is up steps and rocks, but well worth the hike. The views you get are second to none in Scotland,... More

I started my hike on a cool November day with cloudy skies. There was one other car in the small parking lot at the base and I saw another couple get off a bus to hike up as well. I followed and was eventually followed by that young couple and then lost them when it started to rain then hail... More
